Stages of self-isolation
I'd like to think that this is to self-isolation what the Kübler-Ross model is to grief.
The empirical testing is currently limited to a subject of 1 but the stages are also based on anecdotal evidence from dozens of other subjects and several hundred social media scans.
Why is this happening to me/us?
When will this end?
Who is responsible for it?
How many chocolates can I eat just for the heck of it?
How many cans of pringles can I inhale?
How many TV shows can I watch end to end?
How many days can I spend in my pjs?
How can I move as little as possible?
How many hours can I spend scrolling through memes?
How can I clean this mess?
Why do I have so many things?
What can I get rid of?
Should I cut my own hair?
Maybe I need to eat a vegetable?
What shall I paint?
Which new dish will I learn to prepare?
How can I cheer someone up?
What new skill can I pick up?
What will I do differently when this is over?
How can I help someone in need?
What books should I read?
Should I start learning a new language?
Which long lost friend shall I call next?
How can I work out at home?
What should my new daily schedule look like?
How can I change the way in which I work?
What shall I write about next?
I salute those who went straight to learning.
Those going back-and-forth between stages, that's okay too.
